He may be approaching his 33rd birthday, but Luka Modric is obviously still thought of highly at Real Madrid – especially president Florentino Perez it seems, who says there is no chance the diminutive Croatian will leave for anything less than €750 million.
Goal reports Perez declaring that any buyer must pay the World Cup Golden Ball winner’s release clause (£670m/$870m).
One of his many admirers are Serie A side Inter Milan, who reportedly hoped Modric was prepared to tell the European champions he was ready for a change.
However, Perez has dashed those hopes by sticking an exorbitant price tag on Modric that is sure to chase off any interested team.
“The only possibility that Modric leaves is by paying €750 million,” Perez told reporters.
The midfielder’s Bernabeu contract runs until June 2020.
